SOLD 1272 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse



1272 Vintage Tampa Bay Hotel Postcard Cigar Box Purse

This beautiful vintage postcard image of the Tampa Bay Hotel has been decoupaged onto the front of a Montecristo cigar box and made into the most lovely upcycled cigar box purse! Four red crystals frame the image. The cigar box itself is a very dark brown with red and gold designs and the back is black velvet. The Tampa Bay Hotel is steeped in history and boasts the beautiful minarets. It is now  Plant Hall, part of the University of Tampa and remains in much of its original glory. I flipped the cigar box purse so that the opening is now on the top. A gold three ball lock has been added for security. Gold purse feet have been added to the back and bottom of the cigar box bag for protection. Gold hardware has been attached to the sides so that you may add a strap that you already own. This makes these little cigar box purses of mine versatile in that they can be worn by the handle, over the shoulder or cross- body. I sell straps and gold and silver cross body chains too. The chain in the last photo is available, but not included. The handle is made up of black, bronze, gold and red beads and a black tassel. The inside has been lovingly lined with padded, plush  black velvet and red trim. The original Montecristo label with a fleur de lis has been left on the inner lid. 7.5 x 7 x 2.25″ THIS IS AN AUTHENTIC CIGAR BOX PURSE, SO SMALL FLAWS INFLICTED BY THE SMOKERS OF THE CIGARS ARE TO BE EXPECTED! They only add character and charm! Large flaws will be noted in the description. If you don’t like what you see, I can do custom cigar box purses and can include anything you like!- pictures of family members, pets, places- you name it! I always ship insured. Feel free to call me! 813-655-8003
